Cricket Match Preview:
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will meet again, this time at SRH’s home ground in Hyderabad. With the equations still unknown about the playoff spots, these two teams are still in contention for the playoff spots. Both teams are very close to each other on the points table, with SRH at the fourth position and KXIP at the fifth spot.
Jonny Bairstow, one of the most important cogs in the wheel of SRH’s lineup, has left the tournament for the national duties. As a result, the most successful opening pair of this year’s IPL, David Warner and Jonny Bairstow, will be broken now. In Bairstow’s absence, either Kane Williamson or Martin Guptill will have to open the batting for SRH with David Warner.
KXIP, on the other hand, are losing the momentum just at the wrong time very much like last year. In their last five cricket games, they have won just one cricket game and as a result, they are at the fifth position on the points table. They now have just three cricket games left and they need to win all three of them to qualify for the next round.
SRH will be very pleased with the comeback of Manish Pandey, who scored a fantastic half-century in the game of cricket against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Despite the loss in the cricket game, SRH would have been pleased with Pandey’s performance because their middle order has been almost non-existent in this tournament. Their bowling has still been in good form although neither Bhuvaneshwar Kumar nor Rashid Khan has been among lots of wickets.
KXIP, on the other hand, would be looking at their death bowling and death batting to get a lot better than they have been in the past few cricket games. It is because of poor closing of these parts of the game that they have managed to lose the games of cricket. It is going to be interesting to see which team manages to hide their weaknesses better.
Cricket Match Information:
SRH and KXIP will take on each other for the second time in IPL 2019. Currently, SRH are at number four spot with five wins out of ten cricket games, whereas KXIP are at number five spot with five wins out of 11 cricket games in the tournament.
Probable XI (Our Prediction):
SRH have appointed Kane Williamson as captain this year just like in previous season. However, they are not willing to change the winning combination and Williamson might sit out yet again. Our prediction is of the inclusion of Martin Guptill in the playing eleven for this cricket game.
Here is our prediction of SRH’s playing XI:
- David Warner
- Martin Guptill
- Kane Williamson
- Manish Pandey
- Yusuf Pathan
- Bhuvaneshwar Kumar
- Rashid Khan
- Siddharth Kaul
- Sandeep Sharma
- Vijay Shankar
- Deepak Hooda
Kings XI Punjab
Probable XI (Our Prediction):
KXIP are being led by Ravichandran Ashwin for the second year in a row. KXIP have once again begun well and begun to stutter just like last year. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played in their last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of KXIP’s playing XI:
- KL Rahul
- Chris Gayle
- David Miller
- Ravichandran Ashwin
- Mohammad Sami
- Mayank Agarwal
- GC Viljoen
- Ankit Rajpoot
- Mujeeb ur Rahman
- Mandeep Singh
- David Miller
Cricket Statistics and Prediction:
Ravichandran Ashwin versus David Warner. This battle will be crucial to the outcome of this cricket game. Our prediction is whoever will win this battle will help their team win the contest.
Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:
The pitch in Hyderabad has been a mixed bag this year. Some cricket games have seen high scores, whereas, on some other occasions, there have been low scores. Our prediction is of a score of around 170 for this game of cricket. Conditions are expected to be dry.
SRH will begin this game of cricket as slight favourites. They are coming into this cricket game with slightly better form than KXIP. Hence, our prediction is of SRH’s victory.
Top Batsman (Prediction):
David Warner (SRH) – 50+ runs
Top Bowler (Prediction):
Rashid Khan (SRH) – 2 or more wickets
Most Sixes (Prediction):
David Warner (SRH)
Sunrisers Hyderabad – 1.74
